Figgate Park Panoramic

Lets continue with some Panoramic photos, here we have Figgate park, its a stone throw away from where I live.  here is a snippet from edinburgh.gov.uk

With its distinctive burn running through the park, pond and animated wildlife, the Figgate Park provides an attractive green space in the heart of Edinburgh’s East Neighbourhood. Its many entrances are commonly used by local walkers, joggers and cyclists as a convenient access to areas between Duddingston and Portobello.
